Warhammer 40,000 Smashes Into World of Tanks Modern Armor

Rolling into the battle for the first time ever comes the console-exclusive Leman Russ tank!


A conflict of cosmic scale begins when the action of Warhammer 40,000 collides with World of Tanks Modern Armor as a special part of the current epic season, Gladiators.

During this Imperium-sized event, players can get five new Premium tanks inspired by the Warhammer 40,000 universe, two new 3D Hero Commanders (Volusad Thassius of the Ultramarines and Patricia Laserian of the Sisters of Battle), and six new 2D Standard Commanders.

The Warhammer 40,000 event roars into action on May 2nd and runs until June 6th, 2023.

Triumphantly making its debut in World of Tanks Modern Armor is the Leman Russ heavy tank, a monstrous slab of mechanized armor built exclusively for console. Named for the Primarch of the Space Wolves Legion, the Leman Russ heavy tank for console was conceived and implemented in full cooperation with Games Workshop.

In addition to the Leman Russ heavy tank, the might of Warhammer 40,000 also comes to World of Tanks Modern Armor with new faction-affiliated tanks: the Nemesis tank destroyer, the Teefbreaka light tank, the Reaper's Scythe medium tank, and the Ignis Purgatio medium tank.

Directing the voice-overs for the new 3D Hero Commanders is noted director Jason Baughan (Hitman 2, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Fable: The Journey). Under his expertise, 330 lines of dialog for the Commanders Volusad Thassius of the Ultramarines and Patricia Laserian of the Sisters of Battle are brought strikingly to life, grounding the player and establishing the tone of the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

All of this sets the stage for a month-long, two-stage challenge against both the forces of Chaos and the Orks. In this massive two-stage community event, tankers will align themselves with either the Space Marines or the Sisters of Battle, with the option to change to the other side for the second stage. From there they can join forces with other players around the globe to fight the Orks and the forces of Chaos. Destroying the Orks will make the Ork content available to all users (for purchase or as rewards); the same mechanic will apply to the Chaos forces and their in-game content.
